Once you geta vsat, you're pretty much golden to get the rest of your killstreak. It's just too good.
Lodestar/dogs is something that i typically swap between just because some maps (PLAZA) have huge ass structures that block the lode's view.
Swarm will pretty much cover every objective around the map for 45 seconds. blind eye is useless for protection unless they have a full team because green arrows have an amazing tendancy to take swarms up the ass and refuse to change classes. they will spawn on each other. and they will get caught in the crossfire.
VTOL is pretty much useless because of lodestar. Warthog is good for area denial in demo/dom/hardpoint but swarm tends to beat it out if you can get it.
Part of what makes the K9 Unit and Swarm so lethal is you can't end them early. The other team is forced to adjust. VTOL Warship, Lodestar, Warthog, etc. can all be shot down. I prefer running VSAT/EMP/K9 or VSAT/K9/Swarm.
I dunno what you're playing where you regularly get <10 kills with dogs or swarm
uh, not complete morons?
Anybody with half a brain on plaza would just climb the ladders when K9 is called in, put blind eye on and swarm is useless.
SO that leaves you with what the VSAT? But since they know you're coming, all they have to do is man the 2 access points on the roof a little bit of smart cover and wowza! your dogs and swarm got 0 kills! I bet you feel accomplished for wasting your time using something that a LStrike couldve got you more kills from.
An evenw hen you dont climb ladders to escape from dogs, they move slowly and are weakm one shotgun blast takes them out or a few bullets does. All you have to do is post up, watch a doorway and sha-daisy, your dog dies.
Oh and I summouned a warthog on carrier, got me 2 kills. 2 kills? He even got negative effects on carrier, CARRIER. How do you get negative effects on carrier? is the pilot stevie wonder?
